Poultry

Poultry

Nothing says comfort more than coming home to a roast chicken dinner. Nothing says joy more than feasting on cold chicken sandwich doused in chipotle mayo. Chicken is a family staple and a weekday ritual. In Northern Ireland, we are passionate about quality poultry – from our henhouses to our factory floors. NI is home to many small-scale poultry producers who take immense pride in keeping hens. That’s why local poultry always tastes better.

Fruit & Vegetables

Fruit & Vegetables

Northern Ireland has a full rainbow-spectrum of fruit and veg. Thanks to our green-fingered gardeners our produce is grown here, not flown here. Minimal food miles means fresher. Tastier. Better. Packed with even more vitamins and even fewer preservatives. For the healthiest possible choice, always choose NI produce. We like to think of fruit and veg as hero ingredients – not just a side dish!

Crops

Crops

Our rolling golden acres are abundant in crops and grains. From the brilliant yellow flowers of the rapeseed plant, the creamy taste of local oats to the superior grain baked into every one of our loaves – our crops are fresh and flavourful. They’re safer too, as fewer food miles from field to pantry cut out unnecessary preservatives. And when you choose Northern Irish crops, you are helping us deliver our vision for a brighter, more sustainable future.

Bakery

Bakery

Northern Ireland has a long tradition of home-baking. We have taken our granny’s love of home baking and the recipes handed down to us and we’ve made them our own. Springy soda bread, slathered in salted butter. Melt-in-the-mouth malt loaves. Potato bread, toasted to perfection. Fifteens crammed with marshmallows and cherries. With baking as good as this, Northern Ireland is home for the sweet-toothed.
